  1. Collect notes when the person you're caring for spends time with someone else

    If/when you know they will be with someone else– a friend, caregiver, family member, etc– you can create and use an Activity Type called 'Visit' to log an upcoming activity, and use the person's name in the description.

    This would record at least that your care recipient was with them during that time, and then you can try to make a point of always having notes in there about their time together.

    This way if you see one that is blank, it might serve as a reminder to ask them about it, and even if you don't have notes, you'd…

    • Conditions / Body / Injuries

      I'd be curios to hear how people are tracking conditions (e.g., eczema) and things like bruises. My daughter goes in and out of eczema attacks and it's be interested to look at them over time to see if there are correlations to anything.

      Could just add note but wondered if there were activities set up already for conditions and/or injuries.

      • Reminder to drink more water

        Wish you remembered to drink more water? I did.
        So I made an email reminder in my Birdhouse to email me twice a day at times when I should be reminded to drink water if I haven't been.
        I'm not actually recording the water, but just seeing the email with the fun subject line I wrote helps to remind me and to keep my good habit going in those times when I'm slacking.
        I feel so good about it; it's one of those little things that I am so grateful for.

        • Use "notes" for more information

          I use the "notes" feature everytime I need to describe something or remember something to do with the activity. For example, when she poops, I put it in Birdhouse, and I use "notes" to write whether she'd gotten a laxative or suppository or something. That way, I can get a better idea of how her gut is working.

          • Identify what is most frequent or most problematic

            With the new feature on the web, where you can record your own activity type, and it will show you the most common types for that, you can quickly see which occur most often.
            For example, if you record problem behaviors, it will quickly list them in order of which occur most often.
            Or with something like Snacks, you can see which you have most often; healthy or unhealthy, etc.
            It's very cool!

            • Doctor notes

              I enter doctor visits as a therapy activity and then I put in all the notes that I scribbled down during the appointment right into the activity under "notes". Any time I need to, I just search for the doctor's name and I can find all those notes right there in my Birdhouse, on my phone or on my computer.

              • Food tracking

                I use Birdhouse to track my own food intake each day. I don't like using typical food apps because they all seem to be focused on nutritional content, when all I need is an easy-to-maintain log of what I've eaten so I can hold myself accountable, identify any problem foods (I log moods (like drowsy) and poop too), and reflect on my dietary habits or take those notes with me to the nutritionist.

                • No more double dosing!

                  Whenever we give our daughter any medication, whether it's one of the regular meds she gets or just tylenol, I put it in my Birdhouse. Then, my husband can see it and know that she's already gotten it. This totally cuts down on the worry of giving her too much- or too little of anything!
